    Something else. Great recipe. I used boneless thighs fried them in olive oil and garlic. I also added thyme. Very flavourful, but next time I will double the sauce portion. I didn't bother with peeling the tomatoes...but I did seed the tomatoes as the recipe called for. If there was a difference to peel the tomatos, i'm not sure what benefit that would give me, because the dish was excellent without the extra work in peeling the tomatoes.  -  18 Jul 2008

    My husband tasted it before I did and commented "Lacks depth" Totally spot on - very ordinary!  -  21 Mar 2012
